Meet the Team

Eric Mellgren

As a born athlete and avid soccer player, Eric Mellgren’s first love was fitness. But knowing he wouldn’t be playing seriously after high school, Eric began looking for other positive outlets for his boundless energy. He turned to music, poetry and art. He bought a guitar and began writing, recording and performing as Shotgun Honeymoon; inspired by the work of Shel Silverstein, he wrote a collection of children’s poems; he even tried his hand at painting, all while holding down a day job in music marketing and management.

After spending the better part of his adult life working in the music industry, Eric started the process of searching for “a way of living” instead of just a career. After some therapy work with Jennifer Schaefer, who suggested Nutritional Therapy as a starting point, Eric began his journey toward holistic therapy treatments.

As Eric sought clarity for himself, he craved opportunities to give back. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Eric began doing music therapy with Art of Elysium. He believed in the power of music to help, heal and bring joy to others.

Matt Faldmo

From an early age, Matt has been passionate about music and sound. At eight years old, he started studying percussion, what he now calls, “the heartbeat of life.” From there, he surrounded himself with the positive energy that music can add to every life circumstance.

After playing in bands from elementary school until his senior year, Matt began his professional life and became distracted by the eight to five grind. Without a musical outlet, he sought other forms of inspiration, including nutrition. He became fascinated by the way food influences the way we think, feel and behave.

Matt’s interest in nutrition became a passion. He attended the Nutritional Therapy Association to learn about our methods of healing our mental, emotional and spiritual selves. He searched for answers to his questions: What practices can help people heal in lasting, holistic ways? Is there a low-risk, non-invasive, personal way it can be done all at once?
